The first 1,000 days (from conception to age two) are believed to be the most significant period in a child’s development.
During this fast development time, a child’s organs and body systems are highly responsive to nutritional (including probiotics ) influence . Therefore, this period offers us a unique window to shape a long-term health.
First 1000 days is a period babies should undergo the proper development of a diversified gut microbiota which in turn is fundamental for the formation of a healthy immune system, protection against harmful bacteria and reduction of risk disease (with our special emphasis on alerrgies development).
From birth, microbes in the gut perform essential duties:
The digestion and metabolism of food
The production of neurotransmitters that affect behaviour and cognitive function. 3.The gut microbiota exerts influence over anxiety, mood, sociability and cognition
The development and activation of the immune system. The gut is the centre of the immune system – 70-80% of the body’s immune cells are present in the gut - they help to prevent the development of so called Atopic March which includes atopic dermatitis,food allergy, allergic rhinitis and asthma.
Unfortunately with every generation our babies are having weaker and less differentiated microbiota.This happens mostly due to:
2.Cesarean section (babies get their first microbiome from their mothers during birth)
3.Bottle feeding ( breast milk is the most beneficial in healthy bacteria and should com directly from mother breast - not even when the same milk is pumped and delivered later in a bottle)
4.Stress for mother/baby (babies sense when moms are stressed out)
Since often we do not have full control over those factors mentioned above we still can help our babies by including healthy probiotics as early as possible.
Even the World Allergy Organisation (WAO) favors probiotic supplementation in pregnant/lactating women and in infants especially with a family history of allergic disease
What makes Synergy Care pioneer clinical probiotics great choice for babies :
1.Patented Allergen Free technology.
2. Form easy to serve ( soluble powder) with maximum effectivness (patented micro encapsulation).
3.NO known side effects in clinical studies.
4.Our clinical studies are also made on babies/kids (like for Atopic dermatitis and soon to be finished for Asthma).
5.Good response from Hong Kong paediatricians/dermatologists/ gastroenterologists and approval in Hong Kong hospitals.
